What's the most common way of doing a transaction?

Do most ppl use paypal to do deals? Some other method? Just send a cheque and hope?

if you want to be safe, have the buyer throw the item up on ebay as a buy it now auction so that way no one risks getting burned
it works every time

dealings on the internets is risky.. but like tintedout said.. paypal all the way, specially if you are the seller. wait for the payment to hit your paypal account and then ship the product.

Yeah, I had thought there was a way with Paypal to put funds in escrow until both parties released them, but I don't see it. Basically, it's like mailing a cheque but they ding you for a percentage. Fukit.
